It was interesting seeing how the temples were constructed thousands of years ago without modern building implements. Hagar Qim temple is larger than Mnajdra but both are worthwhile. Walking the 500m steep slope between the temples in the fierce sun can be difficult as there is no shade, but I just took it slowly. The setting on a hilltop next to the sea is also dramatic.

Visited the Temples yesterday and it was was a fascinating experience to see these 2 different Temples that date back to 3000bc. Truly interesting place and really worth a look.

The Hagar Qim and the nearby Mnajdra are very impressive stone monuments. As I see this "temples" I could NOT imagine how this monuments are build by ancient humans. 5 thousand years ago they have neither a crane nor other technical utilities. But don't believe me, impress yourself having a look at Hagar Qim.

Amazing the efforts of people from the Stone Age, motivated by a mixture of religious fervor and agricultural necessity. Great for walking in the February sun and experiencing views, the weather and the results of these builders and pre-literate scholars. The site is well-preserved and accessible. Descriptions of the buildings and signage are excellent. Of the 23 megalithic temples we were able to visit this and another not far away. Neither the origin of the temple builders nor their place of exit are known, leaving much to be learned about these magnificant structures.

One of our favourite sites in Malta: the situation is beautiful. It’s well worth wandering the nature trail after you’ve seen the temples. In mid-February the wildflowers were rampant, the air filled with bird song and the wide-open coastal views magnificent. As are both the Hagar Qim and Mnajdra temples. The parts I found most impressive included the overall layouts, monumental stones, porthole doorways and intricate carvings with flower designs. Information boards around the site are helpful, especially those that explain the alignments in relation to the sun, but one or two signs are mis-placed. There have been two innovations since our last visit. The 3D AV display, with its timeline that sets the context and shows you how the temples probably appeared when new, was tremendous. We were less keen on the golf-buggies that now provide transport back up from the Mnajdra temples. Each time they passed, walkers (like us, still in the majority) were almost squeezed off the not-quite-wide-enough path. Hmmm…
